MNTB Classic Pic – Johnny Cash

I’m pretty sure you’ve seen it.  It’s been around forever and people have been doing it in front of the camera ever since.  Jim Marshall, who took the photograph in 1969 at Cash’s San Quentin Prison performance, asked Cash to do a shot for the warden.  Then Cash flipped the finger and Jim took the photo.  I love hearing the stories behind the photographs.
